    Yep, would solve a lot of issues.

    And Apple a fortune in reconditioning units, surely?

    Why would you need calibration it's pointless

    Given the amount of people posting here about taking their handsets back due to screens with poor colour calibration or temperature, it's clearly not pointless.

    One of the things that's making it easier for me not to upgrade my 2G to a 3GS is the colour warmth of the screen.

    Really? It isn't even bad looking, just different.

    I like my screen,

    but it is a matter of preference.

    it should not be that hard for Apple to come up with a menu enabling setting up the screen.

    Agreed 100%.

    Just this weekend, I was wishing apple had provided a means to calibrate the display.

    We can calibrate computer displays... why not calibrate our mobile display as well? I don't hate warmer screens but mine is ridiculous to the point where it's just bad looking. It looks like someone took a lighter to the bottom and accidentally burned the bottom half of my screen.

    Why do people struggle to hard so make graphic work perfect, if people don't care about the screen quality of device that they're viewing the graphics on? :confused:

    Mine is - I do plenty of photo proof review on it.

    And anyway, why wouldn't how visable your screen is matter?

    …Even if it was simply a 3-button (or 5-button) toggle--cooler, mid, and warmer.

    Apple should do something, YELLOW DISPLAY, is arguably one of the largest issues with the iPhone/iPod touch.

    I have a solution!

    Make your Mac display really, really, really yellow and then your iPhone will look very white in comparison!

    Seeing as the iPhone/iPod Touch touts itself as a media player, i.e. made especially for viewing movies, pictures, etc., it makes even more sense to be able to calibrate the display of the device.

    Add the above to the idea that there seems to be a huge variation in the color temperature of the displays on these devices (whatever generation) and now there are many great reasons for Apple to do this.

    Apple will never do it, and regular app developers can't do it. A jailbreak application could, however, and I'd find such an application to be a very compelling reason to jailbreak.

    One can calibrate the compass, but not the display…!?
